Jatiyatabadi Ainjibi Forum Convener Advocate Khandker Mahbub Hossain on Tuesday said pro-BNP lawyers will be there on the streets with politicians until the fall of the current government is ensured, UNB reports.
“People and lawyers have awakened. We’ll surely free Khaleda Zia through a strong agitation. We’ve taken a vow that we’ll remain in the field with politicians until an election is held under a neutral government and until the current regime’s fall is ensured,” he said.
Mahbub, also a BNP vice-chairman, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at party founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave together with leaders of the newly formed convening committee of Jatiyatabadi Ainjibi Forum.
He demanded the government release all the arrested political leaders, including BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.
The BNP leader alleged that Bangladesh has now turned into a den of corruption, killing, rape and enforced disappearance due to the ‘misrule’ of the current government.
“Who have set up casinos and who have given them shelter? You won’t be able to save big fish by arresting some corrupt elements. We’ll put all the corrupt people on trial,” he warned.
BNP standing committee members Moudud Ahmed, Mirza Abbas, Selima Rahman, and vice-chairmen Netai Roy Chowdhury and Mir Mohammad Nasir were, among others, present.
